Social Speaker for Twitter

ObeeMobee LLC
A hands-free and audible Twitter client. New Tweets are automatically retrieved, displayed and spoken.

○ No need to pull to refresh. Listen to the latest Tweets as you multitask.
○ Speak Tweets from your Timeline, other user's Timelines, Searches, Mentions, Trending Topics or Lists.
○ Control Tweet playback and operations with your voice using Voice Control and Siri Shortcuts.
○ Language detection: speak Tweets in the language they were written.
○ Detect and speak reply threads (i.e. Tweetstorms) from the same user in chronological order.
○ Sound triggers: Play a sound when certain words or phrases are in a Tweet.
○ Choose from any of the iOS speaking voices installed on your device (we recommend Siri Enhanced).
○ Set the speaking rate. Available speeds are 1x, 1.5x, 2x, 4x, 8x and .5x.
○ View Tweets in-app or open them in your preferred Twitter client.
○ Follow/Mute/Block users.
○ Live-updating Retweet and Like counters.
○ Save links to Pocket.
○ Dark mode.
○ Full Apple Watch support.
○ Profanity filter.
○ Accessible (VoiceOver and Voice Control).
○ Kaomoji/emoji art: the most popular of these are detected and spoken aloud.

Premium options (via subscription and in-app purchases):
○ High Quality Speech Voices: purchase tokens to speak Tweets in higher quality voices that get encoded to shareable MP3 files.
○ Continuous fetch: keep attempting to retrieve and speak Tweets while the app is in the background or the device is locked. Note: this means Tweets may begin speaking after periods of silence.

What's new in version 3.2.1
Welcome to Social Speaker v3.2! Here's what's new:
- Queued Tweets will now be preserved from background fetches and across source switches! You'll start to see your pending Tweet counts increase a lot more than before. If it gets to be too much and you want to skip all queued Tweets, simply long-press on the skip-forward button.
- New premium option: you can now suppress speaking of all leading mentions in replies as well as all other Tweet types. This is very helpful on those threads that have a lot of user mentions.
- Video ads will now automatically dismiss after a short amount of time. This returns the free version of the app to true, hands-free use.

v3.2.1 is a bug fix release that addresses infrequent crashes during background fetch operations.
